Something Poetic......

At Eclectic Ellapu this month, we are giving you full rein to create as the challenge for November is

 'Anything Goes'!

My garden is currently in full bloom - it is very much a spring garden as a summer garden needs too much water and work! Here is an example of some of the flowers taken today.

Don't you love flowers!

Back to Eclectic Ellapu.....

I decided to use a small canvas ($2 shop find) which is about 4 x 2 inches.
This is because I saw a similar canvas multi-media in Craft Stamper magazine using the free stamp from that month - my canvas is bigger, the colours are different and Tracy Scott got her white to stay white but mine soaked up the spray and just went light blue!
Her canvas says "we are all a little fragile" and I think it was that that drew me to it first!

My sentiment is from a new set from stampin' Up called Here for You 

It is full of sprays and paint (Dylusions -such beautiful stuff) 

I added some gold flake and then some glitter to the centre of the flower - got it everywhere of course! Some flitter glue smooched about the canvas and along the edges allowed me to bling it up to another level - I drew the stalk and leaves, and painted them with Dylusions paint.

This stamped and Copic coloured flower head was the Freebie from Craft Stamper. 

I made it over two days to allow for drying time
I tried to photograph it in the sunlight but it was just too blingy!

You have a month to enter over at Ellectic Ellapu
Off you go!
